Window replacement and repair in Baltimore

Baltimore skyline

Home windows last an average of 15 - 20 years before needing replacement. You likely need replacement windows in Baltimore if you notice any of the following:

  • Damaged, warped or broken windows
  • Drafts near windows
  • Difficulty opening, closing or locking windows
  • Noise from outside
  • High energy usage
  • Fading furniture or flooring

Replacement windows come in two types. Full-frame replacement windows replace the entire window, including the window frame and sashes, the moveable part of the window that holds the glass. Insert replacement windows fit inside an existing frame. Full-frame replacement windows are more expensive than insert replacement windows but give you the opportunity to completely change window size, type and materials.

Types of replacement windows and costs

Window type Description Average cost
Single-hung One moveable sash and one fixed sash; classic, simple design $100 - $400
Double-hung Two moveable sashes; traditional and popular $150 - $900
Casement Hinged on one side and swings outward; energy-efficient $200 - $800
Awning Hinged on top; keeps weather out while letting air in $400 - $800
Bow and bay Three or more windows at angles; projects outward from wall, giving more interior space $1,100 - $4,000
Sliding One or two sashes move horizontally; easy operation $300 - $1,300
Picture Fixed windows; often comes in custom shapes; good for areas with lots of natural light $300 - $800

Replacement windows in Baltimore also come in different materials, including vinyl, wood, aluminum and fiberglass materials.

Replacement windows materials

Material Description
Vinyl Popular; long-lasting; noncorroding; energy-efficient; maintenance-free
Wood Natural insulating properties; paintable; requires more maintenance
Aluminum Low-profile; easy to maintain; durable
Fiberglass Strong; durable; low-maintenance

Besides style and material, window replacement in Baltimore includes further options, like the number of layers of glass; low-emissivity glass, which allows in light but blocks heat and ultraviolet rays that can fade carpet and furniture; ENERGY STAR certification; and sound ratings.

How to choose a window installer in Baltimore

Consider training, experience, reputation, cost and warranty when choosing a window installer in Baltimore. The Maryland Department of Labor, Licensing and Regulation requires a contractor’s license for window work. Licensed home improvement contractors in Maryland have at least two years of experience, are financially solvent and have $50,000 in liability insurance. Search for active licensees on the Maryland DLLR website.

Baltimore requires a permit to replace windows. Maryland residents also need to comply with energy code requirements. Ask contractors about these obligations, and avoid ones that use shortcuts.

Here are some other tips for choosing a window installer in Baltimore:

  • Use a contractor that both sells and installs windows.
  • Request references and check them.
  • Find out what training installers have; look for certifications from professional organizations like the American Window and Door Institute or InstallationMasters.
  • Ask a contractor to explain the installation process and how long it will take.
  • Get a copy of the warranty, and make sure it covers both parts and labor.

Get at least three estimates before making your decision. Most replacement window companies in Baltimore offer a free in-home consultation to look at your current windows and discuss replacement options.
